Excellent chapter of "La Huella Del Crimen", but less dramatic than previous.
15 August 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"Roberto Prieto" (Carlos Larrañaga) is married to "Carmen" (Ana Marzoa), daughter of a farmer Salamanca. Roberto is a man with a brilliant social and political life after being elected Attorney in Parliament for the third family. Everything starts to go wrong when he falls madly professor a daughter. Roberto wants to legalize the situation and, given the impossibility of divorce, trying to convince those around you of the folly of his wife. On the night of April 29, 1973, when the couple returns from a trip, he is attacked by unknown men and woman she is brutally murdered. Episode was excellently played by Carlos Larrañaga and actress Ana Marzoa, accompanied by Angel Torres, Pepe Rubio and Luisa Rodrigo.

Based on the "Crimen De Velate" which happened at the end of "Franquismo" in 1973 when Jaime Balet, industrial, former vice mayor of Zaragoza, decided to kill his wife, Pilar Cano, with which He had four children. She refused to give him free separation and the way to maintain relations with his lover, Ana Alava. Balet required the services of a hired murderer Juan Midon through a friend who planned the murder.

Balet and his wife moved the April 29, 1973 to Biarritz to play in the Casino Bellevue. Upon returning to Zaragoza he decided to stop at a bend in the top of Velate, 25 kilometers from Pamplona, claiming that he felt sleepiness prevented him from driving. Soon he emerged from the shadows a German, Johan Simeth, which burst the skull of Pilar hitting repeatedly with an iron bar. The criminal injured after her husband, to simulate so the marriage had been attacked by robbers who had then fled with the money. Balet and Midon his friend, were tried and sentenced to death. They were lucky that Franco died before the execution of the sentence, which was commuted.

Pedro Costa given the proximity of the events in time, he changed both names and situations and places, so the result is far from disturbing and gory previous chapters of this series, all real.

This chapter unnecessarily doubles the voice of big players like Pepe Rubio.
